What Car? says...

The Kia Niro might appear to be just another small SUV, but it's actually something quite different.

Like the Toyota Prius, the Niro is a hybrid that uses an electric motor and battery pack to help boost the performance of its 1.6-litre petrol engine while also improving efficiency. The result is CO2 emissions as low as 88g/km, while fuel consumption should rival the most frugal of diesel-powered alternatives.

As we’ve come to expect from Kia, it’s good value, too. It undercuts the Prius while offering more equipment and a seven-year warranty.

It's more practical, too. The SUV body shape and an advanced battery pack mean generous boot space, and plenty of room for passengers. Although there’s no four-wheel-drive option, this shouldn’t matter to the vast majority of buyers.

Read on over the next few pages for our detailed impressions of the Kia Niro.
